The widespread availability and affordability of common cosmetic dental treatments, like professional teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, have made it possible to save teeth from stains and minor cosmetic damage like chips and cracks. But all too often, people wait until something is wrong, like suffering a sports injury that breaks or knocks out a tooth, or a bad case of tooth decay, to go to the dentist. Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, not only is living with a damaged smile optional, it is completely unnecessary. Dr. Jeffrey Galler, a family and cosmetic dentist in Brooklyn, NY, offers a range of cosmetic treatments to address every dental problem under the sun.

When is Cosmetic Dentistry Necessary?
Like any other part of the body, teeth are susceptible to the effects of the food and medications we consume, trauma from an accident from physical activity, biting, chewing and age. Bonding and veneers are versatile treatments that can be used to reshape and resize uneven, chipped or small gaps between teeth. They can also be used to seal a tooth after root canal therapy and for tooth colored fillings. Some types of stains, such as those caused by trauma or as a side effect of medication, can't be removed with teeth whitening products and bleaching. In such cases, dentists use porcelain veneers or bonding to whiten the teeth.
